C++ In Action: Language

Polymorphism

Polymorphic means multi-shaped. A tuner, a tape deck, a CD player--they come in different shapes but they all have the same audio-out jack. You can plug your earphones into it and listen to music no matter whether it came as a modulation of a carrier wave, a set of magnetic domains on a tape or a series of pits in the aluminum substrate on a plastic disk.
